The purpose of the Worship Training Center is the development of tomorrow's Christian artists, praise teams, lead worshippers, bands, and creative arts ministers. Ben's private students have availability to lessons on guitar, bass, keyboard, piano, voice, and drums to develop their individual skill.
As students develop musically, they are given the opportunity to partake in Worship Ensemble Classes to learn both the heart of worship through teachings and the technique of playing with other instruments. These classes are also available for churches needing to develop youth music teams and existing or forming Christian bands.
Songwriting, Theory, Performance, and learning how to record and master your music using the latest in personal recording software are also available to develop talents and get gifts working in the Kingdom.
As a private teacher, my business crossed-over into ministry and continues to shift more into a ministry of training youth rather than just a business of teaching guitar, bass, keyboard, and drums. The Worship Training Center's vision is to develop Christian musicians to a degree of excellence and expertice that exceeds what the world has to offer, but it is also to develop musicians with the right heart toward their music- a heart of humility and servanthood rather than performance and pride. Special seminars and teachings on music ministry and other subjects are regularly offered to the community of believers to empower them.
Worship is more than a "style" of music a teacher can teach! How can a teacher who doesn't even know Jesus teach you how to use your instrument to worship God with your music? It is a heart thing!
For ones who have a sincere desire to use their music for God, the WTC gives them an avenue to take lessons in a Christ centered environment, be part of outreach concerts, and unite with other youth of the area in music.
